I, Michael Vivian Ekka,  am a First Year Master's Student at Aalto University in the School of Arts, Design and Architecture, with a Bachelors Degree in Architecture from School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi, India. 

As an architect, my exposure to many creative fields (art, architecture, ideation, drama, fashion, literature, music, electronics, design, research and development, management, sports, to name a few) have made me a constant participant in various multi-disciplinary discourses and making me into an outstanding leader, creator, professional, team player and a diversified collaborator.

My involved explorations in many fields have also helped me gain an understanding of the layered dimensions in ethics, aesthetics, technology, culture, lifestyle, contextual empathy, resource efficiency, and problem-solving.

Coupled with my unique and extraordinary input with a varied skill-set, I would be a valuable addition in an environment amalgamating and exploring innovative, ingenious and visionary ideations in architecture and art.

With my versatile and extensive work experience (CV attached), I bring a blend of innovation, vision, ingenuity, cross-cultural and synergetic ethic to a workplace. I also have the requisite software know-how regarding architectural works (AutoCAD, Adobe Creative Suite, SketchUp, Revit, Rhino, ArchiCAD, QGIS, etc.) for a variety of visual and presentation styles over many different projects and ideations.

As a structured, keen-eyed and active team leader/member, I would be more than happy to demonstrate these skills in the collaborative, experiential and invigorating work environments.

I would be grateful to be offered an opportunity to be part of a multi-faceted, innovative and visionary community!


Kind Regards,
